Could cramping and back pains after protected intercourse be a pregnancy?

Hi I had protected sex with my partner a week ago and i was ovulating. The past couple days i've had cramping and back pains. I usually get these signs before my period but this time the cramping ha felt worse. The condom didnt break at all is there a very high chance I could be pregnant

Hello dear
I understand your concern
If you have protected sexual intercourse then do not worry about the pregnancy.
Cramping and back pain are variable symptoms of the pregnancy.
But it is present with the missed period and positive pregnancy test and high blood HCG.
You can go for blood HCG, 5 days before the expected period date to check the pregnancy.
In absence of the pregnancy, it may be premenstrual symptoms.
Take proper rest, tablet meftal spas, drink plenty of water and healthy diet.
Hope this may help you

Hello. I had protected sex with my boyfriend twice this cycle. That is on 17th and another day after that. Maybe a week. My fertile days were June 10 11 12. My maybe fertile days according to Period Calender was 13 14 15 16. After which were all safe days. I was supposed to get my periods four days ago. I still haven t got it. I have no cramps, no breast tenderness, no morning sickness and no constipation. However, this month I got the Influenza with high fever and a bad cold. Of which I still haven t recovered. This was before having sex. And I had food poisoning about a week before. So I have been sick and I understand that not being healthy can cause period delays. The condoms were two years away from expiring and we checked leakage from base right after he pulled out. He came once on both occasions. I am a PCOS patient and have had irregular periods in the past. Like two years ago. I also had some of my cysts surgically removed about a year ago and periods were back to regular since then. Though last I checked I did have small cysts. I haven t checked in the near past. I just wanted to know, given all the things above, my chances of being pregnant. As I m trying to avoid being.
